Everything You Need to Know

Ah, the father-daughter dance. It's that moment during the celebration when the bride honors their father, and it represents the gratitude they have for their father's love as they enter a new phase of life. At best, this dance can provide a sweet moment of family connection; at worst, it can feel a little antiquated. Either way, it's a staple at many, if not most, weddings. The father-daughter dance (similar to the mother-son dance, which usually follows) is a way to shine a spotlight on the person who helped guide the newlywed through life.

As you consider integrating the tradition into your wedding, questions will likely arise, such as: When does the father-daughter dance take place? How long should it last? What song should we choose? Where did the tradition come from, anyway? Well, we have answers to all those questions and more. We spoke to Alicia Mae, owner and lead wedding planner of ILÉ Events, about everything pertaining to the father-daughter dance.

Meet the Expert

Alicia Mae is a New Jersey-based wedding planner and the CEO of ILÉ Events.

Read on to learn everything you need to know about the father-daughter dance tradition.

The History and Meaning of the Father-Daughter Dance

As many wedding traditions do, the father-daughter dance stems from our patriarchal history. Back when most marriages were arranged and social, political, and monetary alliances were what led to unions rather than love, the father-daughter dance served as a sort of final demand by the bride's father before their husband became the most important man in their life. After this dance, the bride would be able to dance with their new spouse, whom they had likely only met recently.

Nowadays, the father-daughter dance doesn't carry the same meaning and seldom comes first, at least in American wedding culture. "Initially, in the previous era, the father would have the first dance with his daughter and then 'give her away' to her husband," Mae explains. "As culture evolved, many couples opted for the first dance to be theirs. Now, you will find the father-daughter dance taking place right after the newlywed's first dance."

Since love is the primary driver for marriage these days, most traditions rooted in gender inequality have been reclaimed as special moments between two people who deeply care for one another. The father-daughter dance is regarded as a beautiful moment between a bride and their father and symbolizes their appreciation for the love and guidance they received throughout their life.

Father-Daughter Dance FAQs

When should we have the father-daughter dance?

Most brides have the father-daughter dance right after their first dance with their spouse. If you don't want to have it after the first dance, other good times to squeeze it in are following the toasts and before the cake cutting.

What song should we dance to?

You can talk to your father about what song they would like to dance to, but ultimately, it's up to you. "Some brides choose a heartfelt song that leaves the crowd in tears while other brides option for a song that brings laughter as Dad boogies," Mae says. Whether fast or slow, it should be something that speaks to your relationship. Thankfully, there are a bunch to choose from.

Should we choreograph the dance?

If you're dancing to a more upbeat song, it's not a bad idea. If you're sticking to a traditional slow dance, it might not be necessary, and you can just opt for a couple of dance lessons instead.

Can I also include my stepparents?

Of course! You can always switch partners and songs midway through. If you have a few people you'd like to honor, they can take turns cutting in to share the dance.

Raised by two fathers? Pick two songs, shorten them to about two minutes each, and dedicate a special dance to each of your dads, one after the other.

How long should the dance last?

A lot of the time, the dance will last as long as the song does, granted it falls in the three-to-four minute range. Some people recommend, however, playing a shortened version rather than the full one, since guests' attention spans tend to wane.

Tradition Alternatives

Wedding traditions are not one-size-fits-all and should not be treated as such. There are many ways brides can go about making the father-daughter dance their own. First, it's important to acknowledge that some brides might not have a relationship with their father or, sadly, may no longer have them in their lives. In this case, one might choose to dance with their mother, another family member, or someone else who played an important role in their life growing up.

Mae says that she's seen many creative ways in which couples modernize traditions, which helps to put a unique spin on a wedding. "One of my favorite experiences was watching the newlyweds have their first dance while the bride and groom's parents dance alongside them," Mae recalls. "It was an extended first dance that exemplified the love between each family. Later in the song, other married couples joined in on the fun. This unique twist presented the feeling of family and unity, compared to the old tradition," she says. "Instead of a father giving his daughter away, the two families became one."

As always, whether you stay classic, remix the tradition, or forego it altogether, the choice is yours. "Individually and collectively, the message or traditions you want to begin as a couple rely entirely on you," Mae says. "Starting and sticking to that truth will help you pick what is most valuable to you while wedding planning."

Mothers of the bride and groom steal away happy tears of joy from their faces, while fathers try to restrain their emotions and be more restrained. But there is one touching wedding tradition, when “all the bastions fall”, and fathers very emotionally express their bottomless and boundless love for their adult daughter. There is such a magnificent tradition - the dance of the father and daughter at the wedding, which leaves no one indifferent.

How to choose a style

The romantic and charming white dance of the bride with her father can be staged in any style. The choice of a musical composition and the dance format depend on the dance skills, health status and physical data of the older generation. nine0003

Therefore, it is worth evaluating and thinking over the choreography of the dance and its musical accompaniment in advance. A daughter's wedding dance with her father can be performed in any style. Most suitable:

  • slow waltz;
  • romantic tango;
  • rhythmic salsa;
  • touching rumba;
  • energetic rock and roll;
  • potpuri;
  • cheerful lambada;
  • funny dance performance. nine0025

It should be remembered that the wedding dance of father and daughter should not be too long, even 4-5 minutes is enough.

After all, the main purpose of the dance is not in the technical details of the choreographic performance, but in demonstrating all the warmth and sincerity of parental relationships, the desire of the bride to express gratitude to her father for care and upbringing.

When choosing a wedding dance style, it is important to take into account the general theme of the celebration and the accompanying musical accompaniment of the wedding event. nine0003

To make the dance number of father and daughter exciting and touching, it is necessary to choose a choreographic style in which partners feel as comfortable as possible.

What to consider when choosing music

Traditionally, the bride and groom dance the first dance at the wedding, but the bride invites her father to the second dance. In order for the dance composition to turn out to be romantic and successful, it is necessary to choose the right musical accompaniment. nine0003

Music and lyrics are able to convey all the feelings, mood and emotions of the dancers. Several musical compositions can be suggested as recommendations:

  • Bryan Adams – Everthing I Do.
  • Father and daughter - A. Marakulin.
  • Tim McGraw - My Little Girl.
  • Father - V. Berezovskaya.
  • Daughter - A. Kuchersky.
  • Tep No – Pacing.
  • Maverick Saber – Come Fly Away.

Tips for getting ready

From the side, the dance of the bride with her father seems very sweet and sincere.

Therefore, one should carefully prepare for this beautiful ritual:

  1. Beforehand, one should consult with the father whether he is ready to dance at the wedding celebration. If dad is not ready to dance, then he will be embarrassed by the host's offer to dance with the bride.
  2. If a mutual agreement about the dance is accepted, it is necessary to take a few choreographic lessons at a dance school or learn a few dance moves on your own.
  3. nine0024 Father's age must be taken into account. It is quite possible for a young and active dad to master a few rhythmic movements of a fast dance, and a slow and calm rhythm of a dance composition is well suited for an aged father.

  5. When preparing a dance program, remember that the main dance of the wedding is the dance of the bride and groom. Therefore, it is necessary to take a responsible attitude not only to the preparation of a dance number with the father, but also to prepare in parallel the very first dance of the newlyweds - the bride and groom. nine0025

A wedding is perhaps the most touching event in the life of every person. On this day, excitement overcomes everyone: both parents and grown-up children. Many traditions and customs are associated with the marriage process: they are honored and believed that compliance with the unspoken rules is guaranteed to lead to a happy and strong union of two people.

One of the most beautiful and touching traditions wedding event is a dance of a father with an adult daughter-bride. But, despite the fact that many consider this ritual mandatory, few people know where it came from.

Beautiful and touching dance of the father with the bride

Why does the father dance with his daughter at her wedding?

The tradition originated in ancient times. Now no one will answer the question of who decided to be the first to dance with her daughter at her wedding, but the meaning of the rite itself has been deciphered. The fact is that a wedding in Ancient Rus' was inextricably linked with death - in the sense that a girl died, and a woman, a mother, a successor to her husband's family, was born. nine0003

The dance symbolizes the girl's farewell to her former family

For the last time her father holds her in his arms - now she no longer belongs to him. A man gives his treasure to another "owner" - her husband. The wedding dance is the last unity of father and daughter, she is no longer subject to him.

In addition, it is stated that in this way the father says that the girl is untouched, pure. He seems to guarantee that none of the men, except the father, touched the girl, and the father passes this honor to own the treasure - an innocent girl - to the groom. nine0003

In modern times, the ceremony of the wedding dance of father and daughter has lost its true meaning.

Types of modern dances of father and daughter

Custom does not state what exactly the wedding dance of father and daughter should be. Below we list the most common options.


Original combination of various cuts from popular compositions, mix. It attracts by the fact that the movements do not need to be learned, it is more like a fun improvisation. The potpourri dance gained popularity after the performance of a father and daughter from an American family - they danced cheerfully and fieryly, not really thinking about the rhythm and synchronization of movements. nine0003

Types of wedding dance of father and daughter


Most often performed to a song from a famous cartoon or movie. Heroes - father and daughter - play well-known characters. You need to prepare for such a dance: think over the plot and movements.

Folk dance

Popular among middle-aged people, and young people often play along with them. For example, a square dance looks great: its movements are simple, and the music is cheerful and incendiary.

Dance with song

Requires at least minimal vocal skills. More often, the bride sings a song in honor of her beloved father and invites him to dance, and a slow composition is usually chosen. This option is good because only a girl can rehearse, the father’s business is just to circle his daughter in a dance.


The most beautiful dance. For the first time, a father and daughter performed it at a wedding in the 19th century, since then the waltz has not lost its relevance and has not gone out of fashion. Requires joint rehearsals of dancers. nine0003

Classical dance

The simplest and most affordable option: even those who claim they can't dance can do it. Dad does not have to rehearse, it is enough to remember his young years and circle his daughter in a dance.

Classical dance - the easiest option

What to choose?

First of all, focus on individual abilities. Everyone knows that some people find it difficult to perform in public - in this case, choose a regular slow dance, or let the daughter sing a song and invite her father to dance. nine0003

Remember that a wedding is a very exciting event for everyone. Whatever acting skills a father or daughter has, at such a moment it is very easy to get confused: you should not be wiser with movements.

The following melodies are suitable for slow dance:

  • Mozart "Music of Angels";
  • Sanna Nielsen Undo;
  • Garou "Gitan";
  • Alsou "Father's Daughter";
  • Soso Pavliashvili "White Veil";
  • L. Agutin "Father next to you";
  • Eric Clapton Wonderful Tonight. nine0025

Choose the closest one. Perhaps there is a particular composition that particular dancers like.

If a dance scene is planned, it is necessary to rehearse - in this case, professional choreographers or wedding planners can help.

A wedding is an exciting event for everyone

How to organize?

This dance shouldn't come as a surprise. Therefore, if the young people decide to include a father-daughter dance in the wedding scenario, both parties must be ready. nine0003

It would be nice if the background on the screen were shots taken from childhood photographs of a girl in a family circle.

Usually it looks very touching, brings tears to the eyes of guests - such moments are remembered for a long time

Take care of comfortable clothes and shoes. Especially if you are planning a fast, incendiary performance. A broken heel can ruin not only the dance, but also the bride's evening.

If the father of the bride has a shy character, choose a composition familiar to the man from his youth. Perhaps it will be jazz, blues or even incendiary lambada. nine0003

Announce the beginning of the dance and warn the guests that the performers are nervous, ask for silence. A calm environment will help you concentrate on your movements.

The bride must definitely support her father, say words of gratitude after the dance. The same should be done to the father - it was he who raised the girl who becomes a wife.

Don't try to replicate the blast you saw at someone's wedding. Remember, this is only your day, your wedding and your dance.
